    I was looking at that....Woodhall Spa is pretty & an interesting wander, might be slightly over an hour on a Friday especially.

    Or the Peak District, Castleton maybe?

    We like misterton and west Stockwith.
    Both about 10 miles from dn4 if it's the Balby Doncaster area?
    The white Hart pub in west Stockwith does great ale. They have their own microbrewery on site. The foods cheap but good pub grub too. It's a regular weekend stop for us , with a campsite staggering distance away !

    you can just about get to Hawes in one hour, one of my favourite places, but you are more or less stuck with the CC site, 1/2 mile from town with plenty of pub options, dog friendly virtually everywhere (if you have a dog(y)) :)

    White House farm at Misterton - that's close to you isn't it?
    It's a lovely site, nice pub and little shop in the village.

    Also Haxey Quays at Misterton, opposite Haxey Gate Inn, site now has a number of hard standings and EHU. Pub directly across road, good food and also golf course and driving range. Fishing is also permitted on site, used to be free but think there may be a charge of £2/day now. Open all year round.

    We are looking for somewhere to go in October and Hawes looks like a possibility. We are having a couple of days at Strathclyde Country Park and Hawes is only 150 miles away so an easy drive for us. Thanks for the suggestion (y)
